ETS2 Steam Trading Cards

If you prefer to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam, and happen to be bored waiting for the ETS2 patch to appear, soon we will have something for you to pass time and have fun.

(The patch is really close now, or so we hope. We have "frozen" the assets and code several days ago, only hunting down a few remaining bugs. If it wasn't for a critical bug reported by our testers, the plan was actually to release the patch today. But life is cruel, and we need to go through another round of fixing and testing.)

Valve has introduced a new feature to their Steam platform recently - Steam Trading Cards.

If you have a fancy for collectibles extending your ETS2 experience, you can look forward to Euro Truck Simulator 2 trading cards on Steam. We have submitted our trading card assets for ETS2 on Steam just today, and we hear that they are approved and queued for release, hopefully soon.

We are featuring 7 trading cards, 5 profile backgrounds, and 10 emoticons. All of course under six levels of badges -  all for your Gamer's collection.

Note that any genuine ETS2 Product Key can be used to activate the game on Steam, too.

A bit of Hungary

Today we would like to bring you another peek from the upcoming DLC. This time it is several views from roads and highways in Hungary. There are visible cities in the background on some shots: Budapest and Debrecen. When it comes to size, those two new cities happen to be some of the largest in the growing ETS2 universe.

Today we would like to present you with a microscopic glimpse into what we hinted earlier - our long standing devotion to Euro Truck Simulator 2 evolution.

World of Trucks's ultimate goal is creating an environment where you - our community - can meet, interact and compete with each other in the expansive trucking world.

Shortly after the next patch we intend to release yet another game update, which is currently in deep testing. This update will enable some new features in the game, slightly extending its functionality.

This is only a very early stage of a whole new beginning. We'd go as far as calling it - an early alpha of WoTr. Please bear with us, keep your expectations modest, but positively stretched, for a very long journey into the World of Trucks.

Stay tuned for more!

Which truck do you drive the most in Euro Truck Simulator 2?

Reading your comments on the blog gives us great feedback and inspiration for our current and future developments. Yet we always seek for more!

Today we would like to launch the first poll mapping your preferences and suggestions. The poll will last for 2 weeks starting now (don't worry, there should be more blog posts meanwhile). We hope this will allow us to understand your wishes even better and will help us give you better service in the future.

New Stralis Hi-Way on the streets of Slovakia

We have been writing earlier about the new Iveco Stralis Hi-Way being cooked in "our labs." We would like to show you some more of it today. Driven in the DLC setting - city Banská Bystrica, Slovakia.

You should be able to drive the new Hi-Way in the upcoming patch. In the future, we intend to release more new trucks and configurations for you. Several more trucks are in various stages of completion; our commitment to Euro Truck Simulator 2 is steady and long-term. Last but not least, new and face-lifted trucks will be included in future patches free of charge.

Warning - ETS2 scam!

We have received a warning about something going on which may cause a lot of grief to people falling in for the scheme. Here is a quote of this warning e-mail:

I've seen this link floating around facebook:
It claims to offer a mod for multiplayer, but requires you to fill in questionnaires and ties you into a monthly payments. I just wanted to pass this on to you in hopes that SCS Software could do something about it or at the very least warn the community through the official blog.

Please take note that this is all FAKE and instead of giving you extra fun things to enjoy in the world of ETS2, instead it will only hurt you. NEVER pay for these things, NEVER give such people your personal data! This is a FRAUD!

We will try to chase authorities to get this removed, but you know how it works on the Internet,  if you manage to plug one hole, two new ones will open up immediately.

We know that having multiplayer in a truck sim game is one of the most requested features, you can trust us that we have been for years thinking about how to include it into our games. Having satisfactory multiplayer in a game like ETS2 is not as simple as having it in a race-circuit driving game though. We need persistency, it would basically take turning the game into an MMO for it to work up to our and your expectations. We are surely thinking hard about this, even making preparatory steps in this direction, but the days of multiplayer are not yet near.
